Sustainable Solutions

July 16th, 2012

A group of year 8 geographers began a recycling project in Spring in order to promote sustainability in Central Foundation Boys’ School. This endeavour has since transformed into working with the school architects to implement environmental measures when major redevelopment of the school campus takes place next year. From water usage and solar panels to gardens on the school roof, no stone was left unturned when the boys presented their inventive ideas to the architects.

This month the geographers visited Hackney City farm to get ideas and see community sustainability in action. Charlie, the education officer there showed the boys water collection butts, straw insulated buildings, solar panels, composting troughs and even some chickens. They are now developing a mini model of ‘their wish for a sustainable school’ to show the architects and Mr Brownhill at the next meeting.
